THE EXCITATION OF LONG PERIOD SEISMIC-WAVES BY A SOURCE SPANNING A STRUCTURAL DISCONTINUITY

Abstract:

Simple theoretical results are obtained for the excitation of seismic waves by an indigenous seismic source in the case that the source volume is intersected by a structural discontinuity. In the long wavelength approximation the seismic radiation is identical to that of a point source placed on one side of the discontinuity or of a different point source placed on the other side of the discontinuity. The moment tensors of these two equivalent sources are related by a specific linear transfor...
